Paul Struthers appointed to lead Sage in UK&I

Sage has appointed Paul Struthers as EVP and managing director, UK & Ireland. He takes the helm of Sage’s 2000 strong UK and Ireland team from Sabby Gill, who is leaving the company to take on a new role.

With over 20 years of technology leadership experience at Sage, Amdocs and RSA, Struthers previously led Sage’s global medium segment team and before that was the managing director of the company’s Canadian business. He will be moving to the UK from his native Toronto to join the UK and Ireland team.

Commenting on his appointment, Struthers said: “Over the past couple of years, under Sabby’s leadership, the UK and Ireland business has gone from strength to strength. As we move into a new era for our business, our technology and our industry, it’s a privilege to be a part of the journey.”

Lee Perkins, chief operating officer at Sage, added: “Now, more than ever, we have a responsibility to help small and medium sized businesses across the UK and Ireland with the right solutions and the right advice.

“Paul has a fantastic track record of helping our customers, colleagues and partners succeed. As we embark on our new financial year, I know he will help us on our mission to become a great SaaS company in our home market.”
